Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) connection and telecommunication services have become a trend in ground and air connectivity applications across different transportation systems. On-board connectivity refers to providing the internet connectivity in a ship, aircraft, railways or any other transportation system. On board connectivity services offers wireless internet access, group internet packages, mobile phone internet access and data sharing services. These services enable mobile devices to send and receive short message and multi-media message. .h..
The satellite operators such as Inmarsat Plc provide on-board connectivity services by using satellite data unit or satellite transceiver-modem. The services are delivered to the user by using L-band frequencies around 1500 MHz which is ideal to provide the connectivity services.. Satellites receives signal from ground stations where the data is linked to the relevant public service telephone network (PSTN). A telecommunication provider links the data into the public network and enables the services to be offered to cell phone or any other device.
With the increasing number of aircraft passengers the demand for connectivity amongst passengers is rising which in turn is driving the demand for on-board connectivity market. On-board connectivity services offers fast speed broadband services that delivers fast data rate.. Additionally, technological advancement in the wireless industry such as introduction of internet technologies including 4G and long term evolution (LTE) is further contributing to the market growth of on-board connectivity services.. However, limited bandwidth availability along with the high deployment cost of providing on-board connectivity is affecting the market growth. Moreover, shift towards hybrid systems that offer IPTV \\ and uncertainty over consumer’s acceptance due to high cost of the services is posing a challenge for the market.
On-board connectivity offers several applications such as passenger information system, internet on board, digital advertising, web-browsing, video conferencing, voice over internet protocol (VoIP), on-board entertainment and high speed internet connectivity during travelling. On-board connectivity market can be segmented on the basis of types of connectivity on different transportation system and applications.
